    If someone was born or passed away on a non-"ibber yur", does there birthday or yartzeit fall out on Adar Rishon or Adar Sheini on a leap year?

    Well, one of my daughters was born in Adar - not a leap year. When a leap year comes around (as this year), technically her birthday is Adar Sheini. However, she prefers to celebrate 3 birthdays this year: her english birthday, a birthday "koton" in Adar Aleph and then her real birthday in Adar Sheini. Can't argue with her logic. Why not celebrate as much as you can? :)

    If I'm correct, it's Adar Rishon.

    My birthday is in Adar. When I was younger I used to celebrates in both Adars- not, I only celebrate in the second Adar- which is officially the real one.( trying to push off my birthday!)

    It's Adar Sheini.

    This leads to an interesting phenomenon that we're experiencing right now. Since thirteen years ago was not a leap year, there are no Bar Mitzvahs this month. Everyone born in Sh'vat 5758 had their Bar Mitzvah last month and everyone born in Adar 5758 is having their Bar Mitzvah next month. So this month (Adar I 5771) there are no Bar Mitzvahs.

    My husband has YarTzeit in Adar, so he said Kaddish on the night in the first Adar and by Adar Shayni he will keep the full YarTzeit as he always does

    The real people impacted are the people who are born on the 30th day of Adar I. They're the Jewish equivalents of those who are born on Feb 29.

    and always on schedule

    my youngest was born in Adar Beis.. she's always thrilled for leap years to celebrate her 'real' birthday.
    all 4 of my grandparents, a'h, have Adar yahrzeits... I'm so glad I receive (mail) reminders; I've received for this month... now I'm curious if I'll receive for Adar Beis as well.

    You can also have "misisng days" if it involves the thirtieth of Kislev,or of Heshvan.

  15. Some others who do not have annual birthdays are those born
    30 Cheshvon (1st day Rosh Chodesh Kislev)
    & 30 Kislev (1st day Rosh Chodesh Teves)

    You can also have "misisng days" if it involves the thirtieth of Kislev,or of Heshvan. Events of Adar 1 are observed in Shvat of a pashut year.

    Another intresting point is that if Baby Reuven is born on 20 Adar Aleph and Baby Shimon is born a few weeks later on 5 Adar Beis, and then 13 years later there is only one Adar, and both Reuven and Shimon commit a death penalty crime on the exact same day of the 15th of Adar, the "older" Reuven is off the hook and free since he is still a minor, while the "younger" Shimon is executed as an adult.

    canine...there is a much easier example and much more "lemaaseh" bar mitzvahs ! a boy born on the second month of adar -after his friend born on the first month of adar-will have his bar mitzvah earlier in a non-leap year, if he is born on an earlier day of the month.

    I recently heard a shiur about it. Basically, for mitzvah purposes we wait till the second Adar to be sure but for everything else we can use first one.
    So for bar mitzvah we wait extra for the second Adar.
    But for yartzeit we can use first Adar.

  31. Huvi asked how about wedding anniverseries??

    There are no halachos or minhagim involved, If it is your own day of gratitude to Hashem then one day is as good as the other.

    it's wierd though b/c in the hamodia theyre mentioning in the simcha section Bar Mitzvahs (gets you wondering)

    5760 was a leap year.

    Here's how you figure out whether a year is a leap year or not.

    Take the year and divide it by 19. Look at the remainder of that calculation. If the remainder is 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17 or 19, that year is a leap year.

    5771 modulo 19 = 14, and hence 5771 is a leap year.

    It depends if your anniversery feels like a birthday or a yarzeit.

    Someone said if the event occured in Adar Rishon on an ibber yur, on a non ibber yur it is celebrated in Shevat. Anyone heard that?

    it would be adar sheine... If one was born or passed during adar of a leap year it would be depending on if it was adar rishon or sheine. For example if one was born in the first adar during a leap year, and their bar mitzva is also during a leap year, then they would celebrate it during the first adar. Same goes with a yartzeit!

  38. Here is an easy way to find out whehther a year is מעובר

    go to http://www.chabad.org/calendar/1000year_cdo/aid/6225/jewish/Date-Converter.htm
    and try to convert a date in Adar 2 in that year to civil
